ART: A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO PRICING YOUR ARTA BEGINNERS GUIDE TO PRICING ARTART: A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO PRICING YOUR ART4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are several reasons why an artist will make the decision to sell their work. For some artists, it is almost accidental that they are discovered doing what they love by someone who is willing to pay for it. Often these scenarios lead to a decision to go public, but not all artists sell their works so easily. There are artists who study and practice and build up an inventory of works with the full intention of selling those works for income. For these artists who depend upon sales as a means of income, and possibly survival, pricing art is imperative. Then there are the artists who slowly venture into the arena, one piece at a time, testing the proverbial waters and gauging whether or not their works will compete well in the art world. Regardless of the beginnings or the motivations, pricing art is a task which has confounded the best of artists.

PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.PE: Contrast in Digital Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)

Hello guys, how are you!
This is my second "Go for it" Article and this time it's about Photoshop Tutorials.
Adobe Photoshop software is used by millions of people around the world and it's utility reaches the most different areas such as marketing, advertising, art, illustration, design, fashion, etc. The latest version released is Photoshop CS3 but, for everyone who can't afford this or an older version, you can always join Photoshop Express. This is an online Photoshop software where you can adjust your images and give them some cool effects. You must understand that it doesn't have all the Photoshop Tools like the original softare but, it's better to have this one online than to have nothing at all right? You can find it right here: https://www.photoshop.com/express/landing.html
Photoshop is a very powerful "tool" to improve our work as artists and even to create amazing works of art from scratch.

It doesn't really exactly feel like that long ago when I first started visiting dA and now it's already been a decade.
So kinda for myself (and also anyone possibly interested) here's a journal post recapping my last 10 years~ (Also sort of my journal in photography too, I guess.)
May 17 2002
I signed up on dA when someone in the drawing group I hung out with told me to check out his works here. I was only 14 then. I didn't use dA a lot at the time because it looked like this: http://web.archive.org/web/20030426063919/http://www.deviantart.com/
I was on a 15" 1024x768 display and the ad banner + dA header took up half my screen on every page load. Did not like. >_>
I dropped by dA every now and then, in Sept I suddenly found it a lot more user-friendly, the new version: http://web.archive.org/web/20030922013355/http://www.deviantart.com/

Photomanips for BeginnersWhat is a photomanipulation?Photomanips for Beginners4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Photomanipulations are images that have been composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new.
This is what the gallery description states. But what does it mean?
It means that a photomanipulation is based on photographs.
Not sketches scanned in (like line art for example) or screenshots from a video game. However, if you scan a photograph or for example dried flowers, it would be considered a photograph; while a photograph taken of line art still remains a sketch and is not consiered a photograph. Video game screenshots are copyrighted images btw and as such cannot be used at all.
It means that you need to use more than one photograph.
Retouching work as well as work that uses brushes or texture overlays only to "spice up" a photo that was taken by yourself(!) should be submitted to Photography > Darkroom, while work that uses stock images (i.e. images that you did not take yourself) should be

Little thing called TalentLittle thing called TalentLittle thing called Talent1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"My name is Marc, my emotional life is sensitive and my purse is empty, but they say I have talent."
In general, talent means the skill that someone has quite naturally to do something that is hard, a high degree of ability that a person was born with. It's hard to argue that some people indeed have more of an inherited talent for arts than others. They are able to get to a certain level rather quickly and get a lot of praise along the way. However, relying on talent will only last for so long, there's a point to be reached when nothing but hard work gets you through.

Stop Letting Photoshop Troll YouAlternate Pricing OptionsStop Letting Photoshop Troll You4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to pay out your ass for a fully legal copy of Photoshop. If you know what youre doing, you can get Photoshop CS5 for much less than the $400 price tag ($999 if you want that silly Extended version).
Option 1: Student pricing. If you are a student, and Im pretty damn sure a great majority of you readers are, you would do well to check out Student Pricing. You see Adobe isnt as stupid as it looks. They know that if they make their products upwards of 80% less for the students and teachers, then they will buy their products, and learn and teach how to use them. When the students get out of school, the only programs they will know how use are Adobe products, but being as they are no longer students, they will be forced to pay full price for their Adobe stuff. Its a very smart business plan. But anyways, check out the Adobe Education sto
Learning to Paint Digitally, Edition 3Welcome...Learning to Paint Digitally, Edition 37 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...to Learning to Paint Digitally, Edition 3. I am still amazed at the enthusiasm of the digital community with my first two articles! I am so glad I was able to help so many people, so, lets get started on Edition 3 already!
The Plan: This series is not only to give beginners a starting point, but also to help even seasoned painters with tricks or tips they did not know before. My hope is that we all learn something we did not know before since there are so many ways to do one thing, it is my belief that reading how one person may do something will strengthen our skills as artists and help us to learn and develop our own style and techniques.
The Promise: My promise to the community through this new series of articles is that I will:
Read each Tutorial before presenting it to you.Try each brush set myself before including it in the "lessons."Try to be as clear and simple as possible

And how many dead accounts and unrelated results might you sift through to find what you're looking for?

Not that I'm complaining. I simply saw an opportunity to compile a listing of deviantART's 80 most helpful groups about resources. But let's back up a bit.

It seems a lot of people really do have trouble finding models that they've seen and like for MMD. I have a lot of people who visit my Deviant Art gallery asking for links and this can get irritating as I am not in the habit of collating links. However, there is a percentage of people who genuinely are new to MMD and really have no idea, and it is for these people that I am writing this brief tutorial.
Almost all models available for MMD exists somewhere on the Internet for download with perhaps the following exceptions:
Those that are sold commercially (Windows 100% models)Those that were taken out of circulation by their creatorsThose that are made privately for personal enjoyment or private collections
In general, you should NEVER ask for a download link for these as in the case of 1 & 2, where download links exists, they are probably ILLEGAL (as in you'll probably be breaking applicable Copyright Laws if you used those links). As for case 3,
The Love for FoodFood is art in so many ways. We're so used to seeing it that sometimes, we fail to see it as a form of art. Culinary Arts is a somewhat small and forgotten gallery, specially when compared with popular galleries like traditional art. However, there's a vibrant community and many talented artists showing off their art.The Love for Food3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Food is special, not only because of the obvious organic necessity to consume it, but also because food, preparing it and eating is one of the few human activities that involves all five traditional senses, therefore rendering it unique in the way we appreciate it. Eating is a whole artistic experience, from the moment we smell the food, when we see it, savor it, feel its texture and the different noises it may produce during preparation or consumption.
I invite you to see food in a whole different way today. Go a step beyond fast and convenience foods. Add a bit of art to your life, live like an artist as
